Licence plate lights on with trunk light

Hello all;

I posted this on the W124 forum but no luck. Has anyone experienced licence plate lights that think they are trunk lights?

The three (two plate lights and one trunk light) come on only with the trunk switch. Turning the headlights on turns all three off. I checked (wiggled) all the associated wires but there is no obvious contact or chafing. Is there a control module on the W124? Any other ideas?

That is strong possibility.
